SECURE Act of 2019

Body (Limited)

The Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act of 2019 was created to increase access to tax-advantaged accounts for all Americans and help prevent older Americans from outliving their assets.

Some key results from the SECURE Act include removing the age restrictions for contributing to a Traditional IRA (previously contributions had to stop at age 70½); increasing the age for required minimum distributions (RMDs) from 70½ to 72; and adjusting the non-spousal beneficiary(ies) withdrawal timeframe from over the life of the beneficiary(ies) to a 10-year limit.
